Are the constant aperture Panasonic lenses worth it (and are you wating for Olympus?)

I'd agree with you about the f2.8, but the 35-100 is great at f4 and there isn't really any competition for a high quality m43 zoom at those focal lengths. So while it does seem somewhat overpriced (as I said before, it seems perhaps 20% to me, but that's just me) if it's what you want it's the only game in town. Plus they can charge what they like and people have to make their mind up what that means to them.

I'd say the 12-35 is in slightly weaker territory as the edges aren't so hot, possibly due to software distortion correction but I don't care how they got that way, and there's lots of prime options.
